I'm using Gloss dk in red and size 8 needles (my new Denise.)

It's for my 7 week old dd. She is almost 13lbs and has an 18" chest, So I upsized the needles. My friend is enabling/helping me. My first sweater.

I'm on row 9...

Baby sweaters are the best to start with. Size is flexible and you get to learn basic construction. Enjoy!

Finished a couple more rows. I'm mega fretting as I'm not sure doing it properly - I know I missed a YO on the collar. It's the "bobble" bit I'm worried about. I assumed the "bar 1" here = M1 so I did M1 how I always do, lift with right needle, twist ( I think ) put on left needle, knit the back of the stitch. (I do it this way to avoid a hole.) The other inc is kfb which I do the usual way.

That is beautiful! Love the color!

Usually a bar increase is KFB, but she has other instructions which do sound like M1 although she doesn't say to twist or ktbl. As long as you're consistent it doesn't matter really.

About 1.5" of stockinette left, then I do the bottom border. Then the sleeves!

So sweet! I agree--with two pulling at your time and attention, you finished that in record time. :thumbsup: And worked on a sock in there, too!
